Connie Inglis es una joven inglesa de 23 años que durante 13 años padeció anorexia, una enfermedad que significó que en tres ocasiones estuviera internada.
Durante este tiempo estuvo en tratamiento para combatirla, y ahora, después de su recuperación, realiza campañas para personas que atraviesan por lo mismo.
A través de su cuenta de Instagram fue dejando constancia de sus avances desde que finalmente optó por combatir un mal que le significó, incluso, que en edad adulta pesara lo mismo que una niña de cinco años.
Gracias a este proyecto inspiracional que comenzó mediante las redes sociales, ha llegado a reunir cerca de 90 mil seguidores en Instagram, donde realiza comparaciones de cómo era ante versus en la actualidad.
In both of these photographs I am the same weight. I am a 'healthy' bmi. So if we're going with what the media tells us about anorexia, this means I wasn't fighting a daily battle in either of these pictures... right? Wrong! 🌸 In the picture on the left I'm 13. I was weight restored still on an ng. But even at a bmi of 20 the thoughts still plagued me. I still couldn't eat. But I'd look just fine without the tube right? 🌸 The picture on the right was taken a couple of months ago. I'm exactly the same weight as the first picture but I'm at home, in recovery and managing to fight the majority of the thoughts that come along. 🌸 My point is that you don't have to be stick thin to be suffering. You don't have to be on the verge of death to be in pain. Your bmi means NOTHING when an eating disorders involving. If need help, it doesn't matter what you weigh, it doesn't matter what you look like. You should never be turned away because you don't fit into the 'typical' anorexia box. You should never feel like you aren't sick enough. You should never be made to feel like your illness isn't 'as bad' as someone else's. 🌸 If anyone is struggling, I'm with you every step of the way. If your fighting and screaming but nobody hears you, I'm here to listen. If someone tells you you can't have an eating disorder because your 'not thin enough' tell them to go f**k themselves because they don't have a clue! 🌸 Everyone deserves help. Everyone deserves for there struggles to be herd. Eating disorders do not discriminate. Bmi doesn't define you. You are never alone💜💜💜 #positivebeatsperfect
